Diversity Honors 2017

Diversity Honors 2017Saturday, May 6, 7pm-10pm – Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood

Join for the third annual Diversity Honors, presented by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Hollywood, and to kick-off Harvey Milk Day events across the worlds. This black-tie-optional gala will benefit the Harvey Milk Foundation and The Pride Center and spotlight those who are transforming lives by living authentically and advancing inclusiveness. This collaborative effort between The Harvey Milk Foundation and The Pride Center at Equality Park, along with generous support from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, has put South Florida on the international stage of LGBTQ rights and activism in honor of Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States who was assassinated shortly after winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the election of Harvey Milk to public office.

The magical evening will commence with a lively cocktail reception and a variety of silent auction items. A seated three-course dinner will be followed by a memorable awards presentation hosted by Craig Stevens, WSVN-TV evening news anchor. The charitable evening will culminate with a Stoli Vodka After-Party, also to be held at Hard Rock Live. Headline entertainment will be provided by Well-Strung, a string quartet with a modern twist, featuring Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola). The group plays universally recognized classical pieces while singing pop music hits from the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and other pop stars for a uniquely engaging experience. Tickets are $200 per person. A special photo opportunity with Well- Strung is available for an additional $75. #DiversityHonors
